(Updated 8/15 to correct the first stop.)
It’s August and it’s warm. Let’s ride for ice cream!
This Saturday, August 18th, the Kidical Mass ride has 1 or 2 stops for ice cream and 1 for playing. It’s a loop ride of about 3.5 miles, but with the breaks it shouldn’t seem too long. We will be going up the hill on SE Lincoln Street (from SE 52nd Ave to SE 54th Ave), but otherwise it will be a nice, easy ride.
We are starting at Clinton City Park, leaving from the playground area at 1pm. From there we will head west on Woodward/Clinton. The first stop is at the Salt & Straw push-cart for ice cream. Next we head just around the corner for play time at Sewallcrest Park. Feel free to buy other treats and eats and enjoy them at the park too! (While there the grown-ups can decide if we should also stop at Dairy Queen on our way back to the beginning.)
After our play-break we will head east on SE Lincoln to SE 56th Ave which will take us to (Dairy Queen and) a light where we can cross Division safely to return to the playground at Clinton City Park.
Hope to see you for some fun in the sun! Remember it is this Saturday, 8/18!
Here is a Google Map with our approximate route (it won’t allow routing on the paths inside park boundaries).
